Best Practice For Simulating Salesforce Databases

Hello, 

 

I'd like to import a number of objects from Salesforces and create relationships between them as efficiently as possible. 

 

For example, I have a business process object that needs to be related to an account object. This is extremely easy in PowerBI, but it doesn't seem so intuitive in PowerApps. I'm able to pull in the Salesforce objects as "Entities", but creating the relationships seems to be a bit of a mystery. Even after reading all of the documentation, I can't seem to figure out how to import all needed objects and then create the necessary relationships. 

 

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Hi @Fina ,

 

Did you mean that you want to create the object relationships of Salesforce in PowerApps? If so, then I think this cannot be achieved so far. You could see what you can do with Salesforce connector inside PowerApps here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/salesforce/

 

If you need this feature, please consider to add an idea in PowerApps Idea forum here:
